[image]Phytoplankton bloom in the Bay of Biscay - Jeff Schmaltz
Enormous clouds of rich blue-green phytplankton swirl through the waters of the Bay of Biscay in this true-color Aqua MODIS image acquired April 29, 2005. Stretching across almost the entirety of the Bay, the phytoplankton reveal currents and eddies in the water. Phytoplankton are tiny single-celled organisms that feed off of sunlight and nutrients in the water; they use chlorophyll, like their land-based plant relatives, to drive this process...

Careful inspection of this true-color scene reveals there are likely a variety of species of phytoplankton blooming in the bay. Notice the dark green hues near shore along France’s western coastline, likely due to the green pigment chlorophyll, which phytoplankton use for photosynthesis (just like their land-based cousins).In contrast, the much bright...
